Her father, a small-time painter, was unable to afford an expensive heart surgery and had even sold her toys and bicycle to purchase medicines. Vaishali, a Class II student, then wrote a letter to PM Modi, requesting him to help her by explaining her health condition and her family's financial inability to meet the huge medical expenses. Within a week, the Prime Minister's Office alerted the Pune district administration, prompting them to help the girl.
The district authorities traced the family's address and rushed the girl to city-based Ruby Hall Clinic where she was successfully operated free of charge on June 2. However, due to our poor economical background and lack of below poverty line BPL documents, the surgery was not possible," said Vaishali's uncle Pratap Yadav, who is also a painter.

We felt comfortable knowing what it was, but were still very anxious about what was going to happen next. Her body was tiny - how could she endure such a big procedure? Would she cope? Amelia made a quick recovery, however she was readmitted to the Freeman over Christmas in for urgent heart surgery. And it really did lift so much pressure off our shoulders.

Hole in the Heart - What it is
Not everyone is who they say they are. Some people are liars, including Galactic Gavin. Someone tell my sister she is more mixed up than peanut butter and jam on toast.
I like Gavin. Or Cluedo? And I know all about this stuff because my romance books tell me. Mr Spooner always talks about them in maths and they confuse me. Topaz carries on regardless.
Remember yesterday, when we were walking home from school and I went off because I fancied an iced bun from Bread Pitt. She looks at me solemnly. And she and Galactic Gavin walked off down the road together.
